its sad but the cut out for camera is dummy . Like when you watching video you getting that cut out in your face all your time ,screen must be clear .+ i think that down bezel is to big ,and
you have a filing of missing up bezel ...
This phone looks great, will definitely get one when available.
They should put their front camera at bottom bezel (maybe left corner) just like dell venue tablet
the camera cut out is not a big deal really I think that the phone looks great!
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2017FYI it is done by Foxconn, not the Japanese team.FYI Foxconn assembled many phones from many brands like iphone, blackberry, motorola, nokia, sony, acer, nextbit robin, hewletpackard (tablets), huawei, xiaomi, etc.. And many other brands partnered with foxconn to manufactured/assembled (phones, laptop, etc) by foxconn like kindle amazon, google, infocus, dell, playstation, wii, xbox, cisco, microsoft, vizio and many products and many brands.. So, what's your point?
does it have eis / ois...? any stabilizers? fm radio ?
y x12 when x18 is out soon... ?
battery is let down - only 3k..??
oppo and one plus similar design - same parent company....
apple and aquos s2 similar - foxconn.... cost sharing with same design same assembly line... much like cars...
although have to say it is new design and looks great...

I am not implying Sharp of copying anyone (In fact I only has respect for them). If you look back to my original comment, I just said that I don't like this new trend of cutting out part of the screen (like what we have seen Essential & Apple already do).
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2017Sharp is Chinese nowglad to hear that. their previous owner was very slow in innovation.
btw.. their neighbor are still suffering the same slow innovation problem. i hope china will kindly help their neighbor too.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2017FYI it is done by Foxconn, not the Japanese team.i know it. that is the main reason why sharp gives us something new.

I think the staff at gsma has changed.. It feels like a newb is writing these.. And in great haste.. At least put it once through grammerly
Phone Design Is Awesome...... Now Competition Will Be Tough For Big Brands ..... Good For Costumers :)
